A review about PubG, one of the many Battle Royal games out there these days, which makes it hard to choose one. Each game is different, and they all have their own prices, features and so forth, which brings the question if you had to pick one, which one will it be? Well, I cannot tell you what to pick, but I can provide all the info needed to make a choice, so without further a due; let us review.
PubG – Quick Overview
Battle Royal Game
Game Graphics (Blood/Bodies)
The game does include a lot of blood and blood spatter, however, once a person is killed, a small casket/box will appear instead of a body. There are no other bodies present in the game or any skeletons and such. The only thing to look out for is the blood.
Does the game include foul speech, drugs or weapons?
The game itself does not include any foul speech, but since it is a multiplayer game, there is no telling what kind of speech other players might use. There is no alcohol or drugs present either, however, there are shield drinks and health injections, which could look suspicious, but they are not drugs, nor alcohol. Weapons play a very big part in the game as they are used to killing one another. Everyday items such as frying pans can also be used as weapons in the game.
Yes, the game does have a high violence rating as the point of the game is to seek out other people and kill them with the use of weapons, pans and so forth, but it is low enough that they consider 13-year-olds, old enough to play the game. A bit of blood and killing each other is, on the other hand, the only violence present in the game.
First or Third Person Shooter?
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds is mostly a third-person shooter game, however, there are other modes and settings including the ability to play in the first person, which makes the game even more difficult. Zooming in with your weapons scope and so forth also requires you to play in the first person.
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has an age restriction of 13 along with parental control settings for younger players. The settings work as follows; the parent has to give access to the game before the person/child can play. This is usually done with passwords and so forth.
Online or Offline Game?
PubG is a multiplayer game which means, internet access is required. It is furthermore a battle royal game which makes internet access even more necessary. If you want to play the game, you will most definitely need an internet connection at all times.
The PubG game has a set price of $29.99, no matter where you buy it from or for what platform it is intended for. They have also released a free beta version of the game known as PubG Lite so people can try it out first before purchasing.
Keep in mind that PubG has an in-game store where one can buy customizations and so forth. Real life money can be used for these purchases or in-game currency which can be replenished with real life cash.

PubG Game Play
PubG is a Battle Royal game and the description Battle Royal already tells us what this game is all about, but for those who do not know what the term means, here is an explanation.
All Battle Royal games, such as PubG, Fortnite and so forth, have the same basic principles to the game with the only differences being the way the game was constructed, the maps, characters, weapons and such. In a battle royal game, 100 or so players are dropped onto a map where they then have to scavenge for weapons, shields and so forth to use during the game. As the game goes on, the players will be forced together by a storm or something similar which is just a circle that shrinks over time and if you do not stay inside that circle you lose health until you die. When players encounter on another they battle to the death as the goal of the game is to be the last man/team standing.
To put it in short;
Land on a map
Collect weapons and so forth
Kill everyone until you or your team are the only thing left standing
Oh, and remember to stay in the circle, your characters life depends on it.

There are 4 different islands one can land on after parachuting from the plane. Each match the planes rout will change, so decide quickly where it is you want to land.

During the game, certain areas will light up in red, indicated an imminent threat, aka the place will be bombed in the near future, killing everyone in the area.

Amazing graphics and the developers really did an amazing job with the effects and so forth.
Loads of different weapons to use and they are scattered all over the map. The great ones are not just in specific locations, but everywhere.
The special game modes are actually quite a bit of fun as they bend the rules quite a bit from the original game.
The map itself is also not too bad as you have a choice between 4 different islands to land and play on.
They need a bit more variety in customization as well as weapons.
A few more challenges and so on could be a great addition to the game.
